The Peach Melba (French: pêche Melba is a classic dessert, invented in 1892 or 1893 by the French chef Auguste Escoffier at the Savoy Hotel, London to honour the Australian soprano, Nellie Melba. It combines two favourite summer fruits: peaches and raspberry sauce accompanying vanilla ice cream. (source: wikipedia)
Peach Melba is also the name of a gorgeous shade (no.72) of peach polish by BeautyUK (source: liloopedia). Many pale or pastel polishes tend to be streaky or patchy. Not with this one. Application of peach melba was, as per usual a doddle and a pleasure. The overdose of pictures will give you a pretty good clue on how much I have enjoyed this polish :P
My pictures show 3 coats but some of you might prefer to put 4 coats. (see close up at the bottom of this post)
I got a little bit fruity and wanted to pose with my beloved mango butter.
Then I got carried away and tried a little bit of nail art. Oh dear. Well it was fun to play.
Peach Melba was sent me for review purposes and I was waiting for the right opportunity. Well, there couldn't be a better moment to indulge in a little bit (or a lot) of Beautyuk.
